Glen Johnson to bring THE HEAT to his Super Six Semifinal and WBC super middleweight title clash with Carl Froch

MIAMI, FL (May 18, 2011) – To show his love for NBA team the Miami Heat and their ongoing effort to win the NBA Championship, Glen “The Road Warrior” Johnson (51-14-2, 35 KOs) will be wearing one of their official home uniforms when he enters the ring for his Super Six World Boxing Classic Semifinal clash against WBC super middleweight champion Carl “Cobra” Froch at the Adrian Phillips Ballroom at historic Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City on Saturday, June 4.

Carl Froch vs. Glen Johnson is presented by DiBella Entertainment and Warriors Boxing, in association with Matchroom Sports and Caesars Atlantic City. The bout will be televised live on SHOWTIME Championship Boxing starting at 9 PM ET/PT (delayed on the west coast).

 Johnson, a season ticket holder and a super fan of the team, will be wearing an official warm-up uniform with breakaway pants, which he will remove in the ring to reveal an authentic team uniform. When the action starts, he will fight with Heat shorts as his trunks.

 Additionally, Johnson’s corner men will all wear Heat warm up outfits on fight night.

“It was all Glen’s idea to show his love for the team,” said Johnson’s manager, Henry Foster. “He rarely misses a game when he’s home.”

 Foster says he took Johnson’s idea to Heat representatives, got their approval and then contacted Adidas and also got their ok.

“Everyone I spoke to was very accommodating,” added Foster. “I’m told that several of the players on the team know about Glen and his love for the team and are also fans of his.”

Not wanting to show a favorite because he loves the entire team, Johnson will wear #42 in reference to his age.

Tickets, priced at $300, $150, $100, and $50, can be purchased through the Boardwalk Hall ticket office and Ticketmaster. Tickets can be purchased online at, by phone at 1-800-745-3000, at any Ticketmaster retail outlet or in person at Boardwalk Hall box office.

-the Roast :

Glen is going down and so are the Heat! Derrick Rose time!

-Radam G :

Glen may go down, but the Bulls, the Heat will beat in Chi-Town. Recognize da time, the Roast. I hope that you know who the Heat's coach is. Do you know who won the major award in baseball last year? Do you know who the P4P boxer is. Do you even recognize that basketball is one of the B sports? El Toros from Chi-Town are going down. They cannot stand the Heat, so ya musta fo'got about da kitchen. Bulls are cooked in there. Holla!

-the Roast :

We took it on the chin last night Radam, but the Bulls will adjust goin to Miami. We get 1 of 2 down south and it's all good. We had to wait a day because Oprah took over the United Center for her last two shows. Killed the Mo a bit. So I assume you are saying the Heat will win because their coach has some Pinoy blood in him? If they do win it will be because they got LeBron and D-Wade(Chicago traitor), anybody could coach that team. Just roll the ball out. Manny is on top now. No doubt. I'd like to see him fight Bradley after JMM. Beat the snot out of that headbutter. Pac is getting older, nobody beats father time. I hope he gets out at the right time, before some young gun shoots him down. Oprah must have some Pinoy in her, she's done pretty well for herself...

-Radam G :

Correction, the Roast. The coach is a PINOY with some other ethnic bloods in him. We Pinoys are proudly mutts -- rainbow blood of humanity. Holla!

-the Roast :

Well I gotta root against him Pinoy or whatever. My Bulls must prevail! Hollering!

-the Roast :

Oh snap. I did not just see that. My Bulls have been pushed to the brink. Hats off to King James, that was one of the best games I've see him play.

-Radam G :

It is almost time for the fat lady to sing. The Bulls cannot stand up to the Heat, so maybe they should get off the court. Don't you just miss the MJ days. Long live Da King [James]. The fat lady is cleaning her throat. Holla!

-the Roast :

I hear that RG, We are on the ropes and the Ref is taking a long look. The Heat is putting the clamps on Rose and the Bulls dont have another go to guy. Not looking too good. I'll never forget the MJ days, good times!
